NEWTON, MA -- April 7, 2003 -- Shira Computers, Ltd., a creator of automated preprint production and workflow management solutions for the worldwide print on-demand, prepress, printing and publishing markets, today announced the rollout of XPRESSI(tm) Version 2.0, a powerful network preprint production and management solution for both Raster and PDF workflows. Visitors to On Demand 2003 will be able to see a demonstration of XPRESSI in booth #4125. "Last fall we introduced XPRESSI, our solution developed to drive down the costs of prepress and its supporting functions. Today we are introducing XPRESSI Version 2.0, the solution that is designed to keep pace with the changing technological landscape," said Scott Champeau, Shira's Vice President of Marketing and Product Management. "We believe that XPRESSI Version 2.0 includes industry defining features that will allow our customers to develop new business, build customer loyalty, redistribute job related liability, and compliment and leverage existing workflows with state-of-the-art solutions at a very reasonable price." As a network-based system, XPRESSI Version 2.0 swiftly and efficiently moves jobs, over a network including the Internet, through a virtual production environment by using features such as device independent design, LightsOut(tm)unattended workflow, 24/7 browser accessibility, and scalability of both software and industry standard hardware for maximum efficiency. XPRESSI supports both Vector and Raster workflows, allowing users to leverage existing workflow configurations. XPRESSI Version 2.0 Key New Features Include: -- Mac OS X - Integrates cross-platform workflow functionality by seamlessly utilizing the full compliment of UNIX connectivity features of Mac OS X with the PC environment. -- PDF/X - Provides the industry's only end-to-end PDF/X solution for full raster, full vector, or a combination vector raster workflow. -- Automated PDF Imposition - Unattended population of imposition templates within any workflow scenario. -- iVue(tm) - Secure, remote soft proofing capability of original full resolution files through high speed streaming technology. -- Resubmit- Resubmission of jobs/files allows simultaneous production flows of the original file, eliminating the timely and costly steps associated with traditional cross-media file repurposing. -- Reload- XPRESSI's unique ability either to integrate into existing workflows or stand on its own leverages customers' existing investment by allowing them to integrate processes from various workflows together with the collaborative capabilities of XPRESSI and maintain critical job tracking and reporting across workflows. XPRESSI Version 2.0 Availability and Pricing: XPRESSI Version 2.0 is available immediately from Shira. Pricing varies depending on configuration.
